For the second year running the NE Permaculture Convergence was a great success. People from across the north east participated in workshops at Scotswood Natural Community Garden. There were a whole host of workshops on offer including ‘Alpine strawberries in a Permaculture garden’, ‘People care communication’, ‘Introduction to backyard poultry’, ‘Cosy. energy-efficient homes’, ‘Herbal first aid’ and many more. Scotswood Natural Community Garden was a fantastic venue, which seems to have gone from strength to strength.
